Capacity Building in North East of Nigeria

IOM supports the Government of Nigeria in strengthening the capacities of camp management actors from National and State Emergency Management Agencies (NEMA/SEMA), the Ministry of Women Affairs, the Ministry of Health, and other humanitarian partners. Key areas of capacity building interventions include on displacement management,/CCCM, displacement tracking matrix, protection and gender-based violence mainstreaming, psychological first aid, SPHERE standards, and others.

Technical support is provided to site management agencies through mentoring and training activities. In 2017, IOM conducted eleven (11) trainings with 302  participants on displacement management/CCCM, mainstreaming gender-based violence (GBV) in CCCM operations with PFAs, the displacement tracking matrix (DTM) and community mapping. In January 2018 alone, IOM, in coordination with the Global CCCM cluster trainers and Nigeria’s CCCM/Shelter/NFI Sector, conducted two ‘Training of Trainers’ on CCCM reaching 42 trainers from government agencies and humanitarian actors. As way forward, the new trainers crafted their plan for CCCM transfer of knowledge in their respective AoR and proposed to formalise the National Pool of CCCM Trainers.
